LOS ANGELES—The Los Angeles Superior Court held a hearing on Wednesday, February 6 in regard to allegations made against R&B singer Chris Brown. The courts suspect that Brown did not successfully complete his 180 days of community service that he was sentenced to after beating girlfriend and fellow singer Rihanna in 2009.

 

Brown was sentenced to five years of probation for a domestic dispute between him and pop icon Rihanna back in 2009 on the eve of the Grammys. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office claims to having evidence that proves Brown did not actually adhere to the terms of his community service sentence at a daycare in Virginia.

 

In their motion against the “Don’t Judge Me” rapper, they have also noted his violation of probation for punching Frank Ocean on January 27 at a Hollywood recording studio. According to Ocean, Brown threatened to shoot him. Although the fight is still being investigated, it has been claimed to be unlikely a conviction will come of it as Ocean does not intend to press charges.

Prosecutors have also noted in their motion that Brown has an alleged faulty license for medical marijuana, as the acupuncturist is not licensed to prescribe drugs. Documents note a Miami incident where Brown stole a fan’s cell phone after they took a picture of him, as well as the “Good Morning America” incident where he threw a chair at a window after a rage when he was asked about the 2009 beating of Rihanna.

 

According to reports, prosecutors do not wish to put Brown in jail, but they do want his probation to be restarted.

 

At the hearing on Wednesday, Brown’s mother and Rihanna were both in attendance. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg decided to let him meet with his probation officer within 48 hours to “discuss allegations.” After stating that she needed to review the evidence and allegations in further detail, a court hearing was scheduled for April 5, 2013.
